At several key instances in the Big West Conference game against visiting UC Davis on Saturday afternoon, the UC Irvine women's basketball team uttered a collective groan when one of its shot attempts bounded or swirled in-and-out. But, thanks in large part to the third double-double of the week for a UCI player, the Anteaters were able to prevail, 79-73, in overtime to complete a two-game home conference sweep for the week and inch up the congested Big West standings. Junior Methlyn Onomoguho loaded up on the stat sheet for the winners, producing 20 points and 13 rebounds for her second double-double of the week.

Some 23 games in, the Orange Coast College women's basketball team is pretty much on Coach Mike Thornton's last nerve. But after coming from behind to secure a 57-49 Orange Empire Conference triumph over visiting Irvine Valley on Wednesday, the Pirates are also perhaps just two crucial road victories from at least a share of the conference championship. OCC, which missed 14 of its first 15 field-goal attempts had just three points for the first 9 minutes, 15 seconds of the game, and trailed, 22-10, with 5:37 left in the first half, improved to 14-9, 5-2 in conference.
